Back to School Read-A-Thon Wrap Up!

I had lots of fun doing my first read-a-thon hosted by Katie's Book Blog from August 16-20. I did pretty good with my goals. I didn't read all of the books I was hoping for, due to life getting in the way, but it did get me out of the small reading slump that I was in at the beginning of this month.

This is what I finished:

 Moloka'i by Alan Brennert, Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas, and A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray (Click on titles for my reviews)

This is what I got started, so I hope to finish soon:

I am very happy to know that I made some good progress during this read-a-thon and I am looking forward to another soon.

The total pages read: 893
The total hours listened: 10 hours and 23 minutes

You can visit my progress and see how I did :)


  1. Great job! I've been meaning to read A Great and Terrible Beauty for a while now. Hope you had fun read-a-thoning!

  2. Hi Honey, I'm home!!!
    Sorry I missed your whole read-a-thon thingy.
    Looks like you did good!

    I chose not to read Moloka'l because it got such mixed reviews. And then you go and give it such a great review?? I may have to think about this one some more.

    1. I too was hesitant about Moloka'i but I am so glad that I read it! It's such a great book! I read A Great and Terrible Beauty right after Moloka'i and it was too easy and simple. I came to appreciate Alan Brennert's writing even more.

  3. Congrats on the read-a-thon! I'm glad it got you out of your reading slump. That's always a good thing!
